    Bankers and Anchors: Rnd 9, 2021 vs Port Adelaide

    This is the round 9, 2021 edition of the weekly Bankers and Anchors thread. Once the game against Port Adelaide is concluded post your nominations for:

    The Bankers = 3 guys/aspects of the game that we banked on to do the right thing during the game
    The Anchors = 3 guys/aspects of the game that weighed us down by their errors or poor play

    Please limit it to no more than three of each player or aspect of the game, but feel free to make honourable/dishonourable mentions. As usual try to make it constructive criticism.

    Try and restrict it to individual players rather than aspects of the overall match - I will allow more freedom now as the thread seems to be going down more of the aspects of the game path so you can have 3 for each made up of aspects of the game and individual players.

    The thread is named in honour of a popular WOOF Contributor, The Banker, who passed away on 22/04/2012 after a six month battle with cancer.

    Re: Bankers and Anchors: Rnd 9, 2021 vs Port Adelaide

    B

    Weightman - Gun
    Sweet - Decent stats, but was better than that
    Libba - When he was near a contest, he won it
    Live ladder - #1 with 146.9% and only nit outright first owing to one bad half of footy

    A

    Scott - If you only get an opportunity or two a game, you need to nail 25m set shots.
    Croz - Did some really, really dumb things that a senior player shouldn’t be making
    McNeil - Not a real anchor, take the shot son. Look at Cody, get it and pin the ears back or at a minimum hit the target.

    Bankers

    The obvious stars I'm gonna overlook. They'll get their kudo's elsewhere

    1. Bailey Williams, just so vital now. He's a gun. But surely opposition coaching has to tell his man.. 'He's gonna try and baulk... don't buy it and you're gonna get a holding the ball inside 50!'

    2. Cody, Cody. I was starting to think as a 170 something key forward, you're opportunities may be elsewhere. You showed tonight you can play the small forward role and therefore be the sit and stand taco of the AFL, and do both.

    3. Duryea. did some really smart and tough stuff tonight. He's been a great recruit.

    Anchors..

    I want to say Lipinski... but in the last, he had some important moments and he held strong in those.

    Nope. I'm gonna give some passes tonight.. but I'm eyeballing you Lipinski...Hannan.... lift your game..

    I thought Croz, redeemed himself in the 4th.
    . and Scott and McNeil, yes they deserve a paddling for their errors, but they do a lot of good stuff without the ball that seems to align closely with what is required for the team plan.

    Libba was rolled gold in tight tonight. As good a performance of that type you’ll see.
    Naughton, one sideways shot aside, was deadly in front of goal.
    Sweet battled manfully, looked hurt at one point, certainly sore post game. Thought he was really brave as an inexperienced ruckman.

    A
    Pat Lipinski, passenger.
    McNeil’s two give offs instead of shots on goal, get hungry lad! Took a bit of shine off a good game.
    Crozier flying in recklessly and letting the ball out the back.

    Is it the bankers and bankers thread?

    Croz coughed up Goals. Scott needs to do more with Hunter & VDM coming back soon (like converting easy shots) and McNeil isn’t an anchor. I just want him to take the running shot. Nothing too drastic after a good win.

    It is tonight!
    A late Anchor though is from Bevo's presser, and his Jordon Sweet anecdote......
    catching a plane, going through the boarding gate, and Sweet pulls up next to Bevo, and Bevo who hasn't seen him that day, says 'G'day Sweety' whilst the flight attendant is nearby......apparently hilarity ensued????

    Re: Bankers and Anchors: Rnd 9, 2021 vs Port Adelaide

    Bankers

    1. Libba - extracting the ball from bottom of packs is incredible. Gets no kudos. Number one clearance player in AFL

    2. Weightman's goal over his head - haven't seen one of those for a long time, and it was timely

    3. Naughton's big mark and goal

    Anchors

    1. Crozier slamming the ball on his foot and turning it over and giving Port a sniff

    2. Hannan - out of touch

    3. Lippa - couldn't keep up with the fast paced game
    FFC: Established 1877

    Bankers:

    JJ - thought he had some great contributions. 2 important long goals. 7 score involvements. Worked back hard to help the defenders too.
    Libba - his game was so good that it was the first thing I talked about to my under 12s. Just did amazing this in the contest.
    Cordy - huge last quarter and rock solid last night.

    Anchors:

    Crozier - isn't going that well. Important he finds some form while Woody is out.
    Hannan - struggling to get involved. But nice goal in the third.

    Interesting to note Bevo was super happy with Hannan's game. "On paper, you may think he didn't have a great night, but he was oustanding and played his role perfectly" to paraphrase.

    He clearly didn't have high expectations placed on Hannan.

    One thing I did not like is Naughton putting his knee square into the back of the head of one of our blokes ( Mcniel? )
    After the English injury, Aaron has to be a little more careful.
    I'm concerned he is going for glory and may put some out for the season.

    I don't think that was his point. It may be yours

    Re: Bankers and Anchors: Rnd 9, 2021 vs Port Adelaide

    Bankers

    Libba and Bont

    Weightman's contributions

    Ditto JJ

    Anchors

    Hard to tell from a radio call. From that, Lipinski and Hannan didn't seem to do much.

    Treloar's form seems a little patchy, would like to see a 4 quarter contribution like Libba's.
